Why I Participate:

Like many people in our community I have been saddened as close friends and family members have passed away from cancer. From a close college friend and housemate who died at 24 from pancreatic cancer to grandparents who battled into their 90's before passing, cancer can strike anyone at any age. Today I have the great privilege of managing a lab that, among other critical basic research endeavors, is investigating the etiology of glioblastoma, the cancer that led to my mother-in-law's death at far too young an age, less than one year from her initial diagnosis.

Now, with several friends currently diagnosed with cancer, I am participating in the sixth Pedal the Cause San Diego cycling fundraiser on November 17th, 2018 - now Padres Pedal The Cause. I will ride 165 miles across San Diego's compelling landscape to raise money to fund the best research ideas at UC San Diego, Moores Cancer Center, Salk Cancer Center, Rady Children's Hospital, and Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute. It will be an unforgettable experience joining thousands of riders who have one shared goal: a world without cancer.

Please support our brave cancer survivors and their families and support cancer research in San Diego with a donation in any amount. 100% of the proceeds stay in San Diego to fund critical research. Together we can find a cure. Please help.
